Quite simply we love cake and setting up our own cake design business meant that we could be surrounded by cake every day. Yes, we really do taste every single cake that comes out of the oven just to check it is as scrumptious as we expect!
Erica has always baked and even now, Charlie can remember Erica baking and designing the most fun birthday cakes for her and her sisters growing up. These included a pink army tank (yes, really), a giant ladybird and that trusty favourite the still loved sweetie cake.
We have both been lucky enough to have been taught by some of the top cake designers from the UK, USA and Australia including Kaysie Lackey (The People’s Cake), Peggy Porschen (Peggy Porschen Cakes) and Trina Thomson (Sweet Ruby Cakes). Using such inspiration and a passion for experimenting with colours and designs we decided to set up our own cake design business and it has been one heck of a ride ever since! From our first Christmas Fair at Kingsnorth School, where we were so focussed on the cakes we forgot to bring any money to give as change to designing and producing cakes for many a book launch in central London! 2015 was an amazing year for Bluebell Kitchen culminating in us winning the Kent Wedding Award – Wedding Cake Designer of the Year (fancy reading our blog all about the awards…here you go!) We are certain things will only get even more exciting.
We are based in Maidstone in Kent, which means we are perfectly placed to deliver all over Kent, London and the South East. In fact within a six months of setting up our business we became the preferred wedding cake supplier for The Hop Farm, The Old Kent Barn, Bradbourne House, Port Lympne Mansion and Gardens and The Gardens Yalding. All very different but stunning venues found in the heart of Kent.
Limiting the number of events that we take on per weekend ensures that our clients receive the utmost in personalised service. Whatever the occasion we will provide the best possible design, taste and experience to make your special day an occasion to remember.
